Another Simple Tip for Upping Your Game – Street Fighter 5 Tutorial Addendum


What’s up guys, I’m here with just an addendum
to my last Street Fighter 5 tutorial, someone in the comments reminded me of a pretty cool
technique called Buffering, and I’m gonna show you how to do it real quick. So if you
look at the input display, you can see what I’m doing here is I’m doing a crouching Medium
Kick, then I’m doing a spiral arrow, but since I’m doing it so fast the spiral arrow doesn’t
come out. What happens is if I’m in range, the spiral arrow does come out. So basically
what you can do here is you can stand just outside of the range of this move, and you
can do this with any character almost, just anyone who has a low cancellable normal and
then a special move. So if you stand just outside of range, you won’t get the special
move, but if they step forward or if they put out a normal, you will get it and you’ll
get the combo. So I’ve set the dummy to just kind of walk around a little bit, and you
can see how this works: I’m just kind of whiffing, but the second he comes into range I get it.
And he can’t quite block it in time because he’s still walking forward. So we’ll do it
just out of range, and as soon as he steps into range he gets hit by it. Like everything
in this game it’s not foolproof, so if the Ryu is someone who is trying to use this technique
on me, you can get whiff punished for it because you are whiffing a normal. So if they’re really
on point they can whiff punish you, or they can just walk up and block, and then if it’s
an unsafe special like spiral arrow then it’ll get blocked and you can get punished, but
if they’re not looking for it, if you’re not too obvious with it then you can use this
buffer technique to pretty good success. So hopefully this is helpful to you guys, thanks
for watching, bye!

  • Hi, jmcrofts, I really like your tutorials, but I recommend not using "click baity" like this one ("Another Simple Tip For Upping Your Game"). If you utilize a title like "Training & Improving Execution By Buffering," perhaps this video would gather more views, since you often come up with training options and modes that I haven't thought of, and I will most likely watch your video. Just my 2c.

  • Yea man great tutorials and I also like the caption text that appears in them too.
    It may sound like a lot of work but if you change your profile name to something more interesting and catchy, I bet you would hit 100 k pretty fast (due to your great content). I think people just need to get exposed to your content more for the huge subscriptions. Just an idea, keep up the great work.
